We are all members of our local community and at Champaign Jewelers, we truly believe in doing everything we can to help our community. We are blessed with having so many local charity groups that are so dedicated to helping people in our Champaign area. They need all the resources they can get!
In January of 2016 we started a new program aimed at helping these local groups. Our thought being that by donating directly to local groups, we would have the largest possible positive impact on the community that we live in. We provide the services of replacing watch batteries and adjusting the size of watch bands at no charge, but ask our clients to make a donation to our "Charity of the Month." At the end of each month, whatever is in the donation jar goes directly to that charity. 100%, every dollar, every month. These donations can make a direct impact on the lives of our neighbors. The local charities that have benefited from this program include: PetNet, Champaign County Humane Society, Life Line Pilots, Courage Connection, Children's Advocacy Center, United Way of Champaign County, Crisis Nursery, Feeding Our Kids, Prairie Dragon Paddlers, and Salt & Light just to name a few.
Our program benefits both our clients and the clients of the groups. Our clients get a service (watch battery or band adjustment) that they would have needed anyway while helping these great organizations!
